Present Your Findings Visually
Visually presenting the findings from analysis makes it easier for the receiver to absorb the information. This can be done wit both static and live maps.
Leading a sales organization is no easy task. You have to be on top of the numbers and understand exactly how different teams are performing across the organization. You need to be able to report on current sales performance and plan for the future. If growth continues the way it is, do we need more people on the ground?
You need balanced and fair territories that provide your sales reps with enough scope to hit their quotas. You also need to be looking at where there are potential risk areas that may need investigation further down the line.
All this information currently lives in spreadsheets across different databases. Extracting relevant information from these spreadsheets not an easy task when you are not an analyst.
When you have compiled your analysis and findings, you will need to present it to key stakeholders to ensure they fully understand and are able to make informed decisions for the success of the business.
1.How to Visualize Current Territories
If your current territories existing only in a spreadsheet or drawn on a map on the wall, you will find it very difficult to match these territories with sales data from their CRM system. Understanding the balance and alignment of these territories will also be quite time consuming.
2.Compare Territory Sales Performance
You need to understand where geographically the company is performing and not performing to begin a deep dive to understand why. With the report system residing in various spreadsheets, you will find it particularly difficult to get a single view.
3.Share Findings with Key Stakeholders
You’ll need to be able to communicate your analysis and findings in an efficient and comprehensive manner when reporting to key stakeholders. You need to show them your rough work so that they trust the data you are presenting them with.
2.Regional Heat Maps
Regional Heat Maps were used to quickly compare sales performance across the territories built in the Territory Builder by overlaying said territories with sales and rep data from their CRM. This map highlighted gaps in rep coverage in addition to opportunities for expansion.Read more
When it came to reporting the findings to key stakeholders, the Senior VP of Sales Operations exported the maps as JPEG files to use in his PowerPoint presentation. In addition to the map images, he included a secure link to the live map for the stakeholders to view at a later time.Read more
Using the eSpatial Territory Builder, you will not only be able to visualize your existing territories, but you will be able to overlay them with your sales data to dig deeper. From a quick glance at a regional heat map which looks at your aggregated sales revenue per territory, you will be able to see which areas are high or low performers. You can then prioritize the investigation or analysis of these areas.
You may find that your territories are unbalanced and that they require realignment. Perhaps the low performing areas are being serviced by fewer sales reps than the high performing areas. Should you require more sales reps on the ground, you now have the data to back up your decision to ramp up recruitment in particular areas.
This data lives on a map and can be shared in various formats with different key stakeholders. Some may require a quick snapshot, others may require an interactive version for them to understand the numbers better. All of which you can do with eSpatial.
